Rural Carrier saves choking co-worker’s life

Rural Carrier Associate Melodie Walters was recently working at her case in a Fort Myers, FL, postal facility when she heard a colleague scream:

“She needs help!”

Walters, a former nurse, saw that another co-worker nearby was choking.

She rushed to the woman’s aid and performed the Heimlich maneuver, dislodging a piece of candy.

The victim recovered from the incident.
